Dr. Compton explained my condition and upcoming surgery, listened to me and answered all of my questions. I needed ptosis (droopy eyelid) surgery. It was one of the easiest medical procedures I've experienced. He and the staff go above and beyond to assist patients. I would highly recommend him.
Doctors time and money is more important than the patients.
Self-verified patient of Dr. Christopher J Compton - Posted on March 2nd, 2016
I had an apt this morning 8:30 AM with Dr Compton. At 10 One and A HALF LATER..... I had to leave bec I am a Mental Health NP and had patients at my office starting at 10:30. I stood up and looked around and fellow pts stated - "You might as well sit down-- THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT OUR TIME." Honest I could not believe patients would state this. How very DISRESPECTFUL/RUDE - OUR TIME and MONEY is not important to them, but their TIME/Money is all important. Some one could have come out and said hey the doctors are way behind; but again-- no one did this either. Apparently this INAPPROPRIATE/RUDE behavior is normal at this office. They are not the only Ophthalmologist in town. I certainly believe I will tell my pts and fellow Medial Providers to be aware of this clinics RUDE Behavior.
